“Beautiful place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Beautiful place but unfortuantely very crowded. Well worth to visit. Great hike around the lake. Amazing views and great photo opportunities. You can rent a canoe. Fairmont hotel looks great at the shore. A must visit place when in Canadian Rockies.

“Stunning”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

The lake was beautiful. Surrounded by mountains , some still snow covered. It was very busy there. The smoke from the northern fires clouded the views a bit but otherwise a must see when in the mountains

Drove out to Lake Louise for a couple hours. Very, very busy. The views are incredible. Walked a short trail. Unfortunately was smokey due to the fires. The mountain and lake views were beautiful.

“Nice Lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

The view is beautiful, and the hotel on the lake looks amazing. However, it is crowded with people which really takes away from the 'nature' part of the experience. Still recommend stopping, but probably much better before breakfast or after supper!?
